A Family Celebration
We're working on a family unit in school. The activities in the unit
enable your child to explore all the many things that make families
especially yours so special. Here are some ways to celebrate
your family at home.
Help your child to create family calendars. Discuss information you
might want to include, such as birthdays of family members and holidays
your family celebrates.You can also schedule family activities, such
as exercising, reading, playing games, and cooking, and note these on
Create a special family memento corner in your home. You can help your
child choose mementos that represent each member of your family.
Look through family photographs together. Describe special memories
relating to the pictures, such as what was happening at the time they
Make a family time capsule using a shoebox. Ask each family member to
contribute a meaningful item. Make a list of who contributes each item
and place this in the capsule. Then, mark the capsule with the date
it's created. Put the capsule in a special place and make a plan to
open it at a given time in the future, such as when your child graduates
(keep a record of this date so you don't forget to open the capsule).
Work with your child to make a set of family placemats. Help your child
find out the favorite foods of each member of the family. Cut out magazine
pictures of these foods and paste them in collages on construction paper.
The collages can then be laminated and used as placemats.
